Herkimer Diamond + Black Spinel 9k Gold Pendant Necklace

Herkimer Diamond + Black Spinel 9k Gold Pendant Necklace

Regular price $578.00
Regular price Sale price $578.00

As the great W. Addams once said:
"I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color."

Modern, cool, and one of a kind as they come, a jet black constellation of sparkling spinels paired with a brilliant Herkimer Diamond are the stars of this breathtaking, dramatic necklace.

In our view, a "guided cage" of 9k gold never looked so good.

Estimated to be over 500 million years old, Herkimer is a rare doubly-terminated faceted quartz crystal revered for its exquisite two point, eighteen facet shape with superb luster and clarity. Which is precisely why the word "diamond" comes after it. (And also why it's the absolute closest you can get without actually going there.)

Made by Hand in
Delhi, India

Born into a globetrotting Danish/Kashmiri family, designer Lena Skadegard's is revered by collectors worldwide for her exquisite hand-crafted, hand-tied 18k precious & semiprecious jewelry.

Known for creating sweeping and majestic palettes using untreated, organic gems and talismanic accents, her work mimics the rich colors found in nature to showcase the raw beauty of each stone she chooses.

Working with family workshops and women's collectives in Delhi, Lena's designs are hand-tied and beaded, resulting in a striking collection of necklaces and bracelets that are utterly unique in style.

Stones are like people – more beautiful when left in their original, most integral state. Beauty is a matter of context. I think, the less controlled, the better.
